At the end of WWII, the US McMahon Act forbade sharing of nuclear weapons information, even with those countries that had been a key part of the Manhattan Project.

This historic film documents Operation Greenhouse, the fifth American nuclear test series and the second conducted in 1951.  Operation Greenhouse was the first to test principles that would lead to developing thermonuclear weapons (hydrogen bombs). Conducted at the new Pacific Proving Ground at Eniwetok Atoll, all of the devices were mounted in large steel towers to simulate air bursts.  Operation Greenhouse represented new and aggressive designs for nuclear weapons. The main idea was to...

"The island of Elugelab is missing!" President Eisenhower heard this short report on the Mike shot in Operation IVY from Gordon Dean, Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission. Mike was the first full-scale hydrogen explosive device to be tested, yet was only a scientific test of a thermofusion implosion device concept. Mike was not a deliverable weapon. The island where the device was detonated was vaporized. The hole Mike left was big enough to accommodate 14 Pentagon-size buildings...

Made during the run-up to the Operation Sandstone nuclear tests, RADIOLOGICAL SAFETY ON OPERATION SANDSTONE was intended to debunk certain misperceptions that the military believed were being put forward in the U.S.A. about the dangers of radiation and fallout.  The film begins with footage of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the study of the blasts made by the United States Atomic Energy Commission.  The narration puts forward the idea that nuclear contamination and exposure can be minimized by...
